TimTheSloth Posted June 6, 2007 Report Share Posted June 6, 2007 Hey guys, it's been a while since I last posted here (you're always there for me in my time of need ). I've been working on installing a new Lindy Fralin pickup in my '52 reiussue tele p-bass. I found out the pickup would fit in the body so I had to dremel it out a bit but other than that it seemed like a fairly simple wiring. Anyway The problem I'm facing now is that I get a very audible hum whenever I turn up my tone pot to the point where the tone pot is worthless. The louder I turn up the pot the louder the up gets. The pickup sounds fine (excellent actually) when tone is all the way down. I'm thinking that it must be some kind of grounding issue but the wiring looks okay to me so I'm a bit baffled. I took some pictures to see if any of you can spot any stupid mistakes I made. *In taking these pictures I realize that somehow in the trying to make the pickup fit in the body the small wires going across the side of the pickup (from top to bottom) have been cut (http://www.guitarpartsresource.com/sd68teleant.jpg is the best example I can find quickly of what it should look like). Could this be the cause of my troubles? If so how can I fix the problem? Thanks for all of your help guys, I really appreciate it. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
